          The W-L next to each chum on your leaderboard is your lifetime record against that player. It is not reset weekly. There is not one beside your Chum since you don’t play against yourself. Your personal lifetime record is found by tapping your chum.

          The W-L is also not tracked until a person is on your leaderboard. So the first game with a Random player does not end up on the list. A person joins your list whenever you rematch with them or start a non-random game.

            We use a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k. People and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few games and you can search on it if interested. However it only has words and not definitions. We look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not have nearly as many definitions. In an upcoming update we are going to research many of the most unusual words and create a list of their definitions we can use in game.  Scrabble’s list is copyrighted so we cannot copy it. The link for their list is below in case you are curious. If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us a support request.Thanks for playing and spreading the word!This is the link for Scrabble’s official list (They have access to…

              I put our knowledge base article on this below.

              The system will delete random games after 7 days and other games after 11.

              When it’s not your turn and you would like to remove a game from your game list you can select “Remove Game” from the game menu. When your are viewing a game board the game menu is in the top right corner. You will no longer see the removed game on your list after selecting remove game. However if the player does make a turn before the auto resign time period is reached it will come back on your list.

              You may also Block a player from starting future games with you or chatting to you. Tap their chum in the game screen and swipe up on the Stats screen to see the “Block” button. You can also block them by tapping their name in your leader…

                  You currently must have a iPhone/iPad or newer iPod touch. Then you just search for Word Chums in the App Store and download it there.

                  We are working on a Facebook/PC version but it will take several months more of development.

                    Try shutting Word Chums down completely and then restart it. To shut it down go to any home screen on your device (a screen where you see all your app icons). Double tap the home button on the front of device. You should see a row of apps at bottom of screen. Assuming Word Chums is one of those…tap and hold Word Chums until the apps wiggle and you see a minus sign. The tap on the minus sign on Word Chums to shut it down. Now try to open Word Chums again and see if it works.

                    If it repeatedly freezes up or the same action causes it to freeze or crash every time go ahead and send a note to support.

                      • You should have the option to accept or deny all games

                        This would help you to not play against undesired players and also to help keep your number of active games down if you want to.

                        • When someone starts a team game with you you should be able to accept it or deny it

                          People will purposely pair themselves with a great player and you with the worst player they can find because they can't beat you theirself.

                            You can decline any game someone starts with you as long as you have not taken your first turn. When it is your turn (and only when its your turn) you can go in to the game and tap the menu button and there will be a decline option. You must have the latest update of the app.

                                  The latest update is now available in the App Store.
                                  You can now go into finished games and remove those before they roll off on their own. Of course you can also still remove inactive games.

                                  Update also includes:
                                  Single player and ways to earn coins for free

                                      • New Chums should start at Level 1...

                                        ...since levels & props stop at Lvl30. That way, you can level up multiple Chums but keep your name & stats.

                                        • Forfeit feature

                                          If your opponent quits playing, longer than 24 hrs, then you should have a forfeit feature so the player waiting for their turn can get credit for a win if they were in the lead at the time of forfeiture.
